What I did on my Saturday vacation

About a month ago I had to slam on my brakes to avoid a run-in with a Schnieder semi.
My truck picked up a bit (somekind) of a harmonic whine at around 70-75 MPH from the left front. I took it to the Brakecheck on Perrin-Bietle since I'd had the entire front end re-done at their San Marcos shop about a year ago. They didn't 'find' anything wrong with my front brakes, or bearings (Hmmm, you don't know my truck like I do). They DID, howerver reccomend they do a bearing and seal job to my rearend. To the tune of about $350. "Because you can start to feel the bearings when you rotate the wheel" (AHHH, well that kinda feels like the gears in my differential- which I've been meaning to add 90 wgt. to for about 6 months)

"Ok, so I don't have a problem with my front wheels?"
'None that we could find, but I would highly reccomment you get that rear end serviced'
"I'll think about it."

Now, almost a month later I take it in to the Brakecheck on Marbach because the truck is really starting to show brake problems- brake smell, HOT rotors, losing almost 1½ MPG. . .

"Mr. P. we found your brake callipers were stuck, your rotors are heat glazed and need to be resurfaced, your pads are shot (well at least you eat that cost), as hot as your wheels got, your bearings really should be replaced before they (seize-up and cut my spindle like a pipe-cutter). Your rear brakes need to be turned, your wheel cylinders are leaking and your shoes are so old they have spider cracks.

Ok, because the N.E. side Brakecheck didn't put my visit into their computer, it ended up costing me $371 in parts and labor- and almost 5 hours of listening to either Sat. AM cartoons or Mexican language TV.

I told the store manager I'd do the back brakes, just throw the drums on a lath (at $25 each) so I don't have to come back.

I got all the way home before I looked at my cell phone that I'd left charging in the truck.
My Real Estate agent had called (from San Marcos - about 90 min away from here) and wanted me to sign some forms so my bidder could start the buying prosses on the trailer. I want to get it out of my loan file, so we sold $6,000 less than I'd have liked.

I also spent $40 to get a prgrammable thermostat that "Slimer" couldn't change- since no-one in the house EVER thinks about resetting the thing. I came in Fri. and the A/C was set at 55º. No one had a clue how it got their, or how long it was like that.

Can someone explain PDF to me?

As you all know, I live in the sticks (ok, Tx brush country) and have a 26K connection -when SBC lets me.

I was adventurous enough to try opening this PDF file from Utterly Boring and, needless to say I gave up on opening it before tomorrow.

I *know* it stands for some kind of data file. WHY do people use it? I don't think I've heard of anyone who likes it (but I don't hang alot with computer geeks). All I know is that I dread clicking on a link with a PDF warning on it. I don't if I don't NEED to look. I shy away from video, too- same 26K reason.

Almost everyone has Word, or Apples' version that can be translated, why is PDF so used?
Do not, , , EVER , , ,join Curves

The wife did and signed up for the auto deduction.
She's been trying for the past four months to get them to cancel - they still are thaking their $31/mo out of our checking account.

The Bank can't help because Curves changes the day they steal our money. If they did it on the same day every month, the bank could stop payments.

I'll never let her do auto payments again.

Instructions on cleaning your toilet

1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid.

4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse".

6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.

9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

I'm not making any recommendations, just copied it from the Tx Sec. of State website. All I did was remove language that should be unnecessary in the United States.

We just got done eating a pig brisket

No wonder those bloggers from back east think a vinegar based sauce used on pigs is right. We just had a BRISKET with bones in it!

If you barbeque in Texas you use Beef brisket from the chest of the cow. It does NOT have ribs in it- we call that cut "ribs".

I know it's revolting to those who use what the Brits put on their fries as a base, but here we use tomato sause as a starting point. Since I have a sweet tooth, it also has alot of brown sugar in it, too; as anyone who's had my Teriaki Jerky can tell you.

To cook a good brisket you cook it over a low slow heat for a good 8-12 hours, about 2-3 hours before you pull it out, you start swabbing it with the sauce (of your choice). Putting meat on a grill and high heat is grilling and no matter how MUCH sauce you douse on it won't turn it into BBQ.

Since I haven't made a smoker, I use the oven. I put the (beef) brisket in and cook it about 200º for about eight hours.

My version of sauce goes something like this:
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 good squirt Yellow Mustard
  • ½ cup or so Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Sweet Onion -finely chopped
  • 1½ TBS (to taste) EA of the following (it'll mellow out in cooking):
Garlic Powder
Ground Cumino
Cayanne (Red) Pepper
  • To taste White Pepper
  • Good shake Sweet Basil
  • Good shake Cinnimon
  • (Optional) dash of Liquid Smoke
Heat and stir as you add the ingredients. Taste and adjust spices as needed.

To prepare the meat, I usually let it sit with a good rub all night in the refrigerator, wrap it in aluminum foil and drop it in the oven.
Dear Senator Hutchinson,

I voted for you more than once.
It has become more and more apparent that you and the rest of my representatives up in D.C. have forgotten where you come from.

I had a quick look at your voting record- after you voted to table most (if not all) of Sen. Coburns' (R. Ok) Fiscal amendments.

I know I'll never hear any replies because I'm not on any of your high dollar donors lists. I would however, love to hear your reasons for throwing money away like drunken Democrats, though.

I just wanted to get this off my chest, since I'll be looking for a seriously CONSERVATIVE representaive to vote for in your next election. I will remember how you and the rest of the Republicans have been running (or not) this country since you took a majority in almost all branches of government.

A dissapointed former Republican,
Kurt P

I just sent this to the electronic version of a federal shredder. I'll let you know if I ever hear anything back. (Don't hold your breath.)
Just in case you're wondering what the EPA says about your vehicle

You can find out the reported fuel economy at their site that gives estimated milage for modles 1985 and up.
I'm looking for a spare vehicle and finally found this after ALOT of dead ends.

Currently at the top of the list is a 1988 Dakota V-6 w/ new-repaired drivetrain within the last 2 years and an 3 yr-old radiator for $1700 OBO.
Since those on the Left like the Latin root words so much

You know, like HOMOPhobe, Xenophobe, Neocons, Paleocons

How about lets start with a nice perjorative Latin term for those on the Left?

Lets try sinister, or more accurately Sinistral.

The TV is on for background noise

Am I the only one that finds the Earthlink commercial with the goblins, giants and faries kinda creepy?

Also thinking about ads I wouldn't spend my money on.

The radio commercial for Izuzu. I'm old enough to remember Joe Izuzu and the fun they had with the Izuzu brand. Now, they've taken the low road with their ads.
(As a quick background- Mitsubishi has ther spokesguy who kinda sounds like McGruff with a soft N.Y. accent)
Now Izuzu has found McGruffs deadbeat unclein the gutter, and got him to slag-off on any kind of competitor they can think of Ford Explorer, Jeep, Mitsu, RAV4, you name it. He's got a grating, irritating voice and accent- and a vile on-air personality. The ad agency must get this bum likkered-up on the cheapest, roughest rot-gut they can find to get that "cutting edge" , , , , , ummm, , , "edgieness".
I would NEVER spend the money they want to someone who puts out an ad like that.

And Buger King- if that plastic faced creep ever shows up at casa Trainwreck, everyone agrees that he's going to have bullet holes in him. If I don't do it, the girls will.

And last but not least- Quiznos has Bob the babe magnet wich is alot better than the previous east coast "hipness" of the mummified rats that couldn't sing. (Mrs. Trainwreck still won't eat there- she wonders what happened to the two rats)
Here's a Senate vote to make you rethink YOUR vote next time

Thursday the senate held a vote related to controlling spending by moving SOME pork to help pay for Katies mess on the gulf coast.

I'll make the post short by listing the Senators who voted for Sen Tom Coburn, R-OK pork amendment:
NAYs ---13 (Yea was to kill the amendment Nay was to pass it- how laweresque)
Allen (R-VA)Hagel (R-NE)
Burr (R-NC)Kyl (R-AZ)
Coburn (R-OK) McCain (R-AZ)
DeMint (R-SC) Talent (R-MO)
Ensign (R-NV) Sununu (R-NH)
Feingold (D-WI) Sessions (R-AL)
Graham (R-SC)

Here's the rest.

I plan on asking MY (RINO) Senators why they'd rather spend even more money than needed. (I *KNOW* why- they're politicians- I want to know why they voted to kill the amendment)
Gov. Bill Richardson praises NoKorea of abandoning it's Nukes

Well he oghtta know about Nuclear energy as Bill Clintons Energy Secretary and NoKo's nuks for nothing program.

As one of the FEW Clintonistas to get out if D.C. without an indictment on him, he was also a prime apologist for the U.N. under that administration.

According to N.M. Governer Bill Richardson(D):
North Korea is committed to dismantling its nuclear weapons programme, an unofficial US envoy has said, after a visit to the capital Pyongyang.

Bill Richardson said he was "very pleased" with North Korea's willingness to make progress in six-nation talks.

Pyongyang has already pledged to abandon its nuclear weapons in an earlier round of the talks.

Mr Richardson, former US ambassador at the UN, said North Korea now wanted to focus on a civilian nuclear programme.

Hmmmm....... where have we heard something like that before?

Oh, yeah, it was during Bills' time in D.C.

The United States and North Korea signed an agreement on October 21, 1994, that offers North Korea a package of benefits in return for a freeze of North Korea's nuclear program. Benefits to North Korea include: light water nuclear reactors totaling 2,000 electric megawatts by the year 2003; shipments of "heavy oil" to North Korea (50,000 tons in 1995 and 500,000 tons annually beginning in 1996 until the first light water reactor is built); U.S. agreement to establish liaison offices as an initial step toward diplomatic relations; and a relaxation of the American economic embargo against North Korea. In December 1995, the United States and North Korea signed a supply contract for the light water reactors.

But, then- Leftist Socialists Commies being Commies:
The stepped-up pace in 1996 in the implementation of the nuclear provisions of the U.S.-North Korean Agreed Framework of October 1994 came to a halt in September 1996 because of a North Korean infiltration of commandos into South Korea by submarine. The commandos murdered several South Korean civilians. At the same time, evidence, albeit circumstantial, pointed to North Korean complicity in the assassination of a South Korean diplomat in Vladivostok, Russia. These actions were the latest in a succession of North Korean provocations that were contrary to the peace and security provisions of the Agreed Framework, which calls for improved security on the Korean peninsula and negotiations between North Korea and South Korea. The R.O.K. (Republic of Korea) government responded by demanding that North Korea apologize for the infiltration and guarantee that it will commit no further provocations.

Which somehow, naturally was our fault that the aid stopped, and Bill Richardson needs to step in and polish his name for , , , ohhh maybe the 2008 election cycle.

This'll p*ss off some Texas ex cheerleaders out there

And I hardly think the Libs will be able to connect their action with this effect.

Some of the big city Texas high schools are thinking- seriously- of doing away with Friday night football.

The reason:
A few school administrators, law enforcement officials and even politicians are considering breaking the time-honored tradition of Friday night games in the wake of recent shootings and fights in Richardson and Duncanville following contests there.

Although those incidents – which resulted in the shooting death of one teen and injuries to several others – occurred away from the stadiums and school district property, the fallout has forced some officials to think the unthinkable.

One of those is Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, who said that he plans to talk with school officials in his precinct about playing games on Saturday mornings. State Sen. Royce West has similar plans and will meet Monday with some area police chiefs and superintendents to discuss safety issues at games and other school events.

Extreme violent behavour.

Ok, granted wherever you have kids and action there will be hasseling or fights.
Todays problems come from the non-enforcement of morals and standards from both PARENTS and schools.
That's right I put parents in a special class because THEy are the ones that are supposed to be looking out for the best of their kids. THEY are the ones who are ultimatly responsible (or used to be) for how their kids act in public.

I blamed Liberals for this earlier. They have been the ones in the vanguard of lowering standards of education and standards of conduct for the past 40+years. They are the ones who silence anyone who wants to keep morals and standards up- to try to protect the belief system that made America great.
Liberals have been defining deviancy, bad manners and self restraint down since as far back as I can remember. Yes, self restraint- the ability to control anger or frustration without resorting to violence or other destructive actions. The parents today are so ambivilent to the way their kids act because they're either browbeaten into acceptance or brainwashed by the Gov't schools themselves that they see nothing wrong with the way they act.

Now, another tradition is going down the toilet because people can't be expected to act as responsible human beings.

Ok, did I connect cause and effect?
OK, that's it- I'm officially against the war now.

If even Burt Bacharach is writing anti-war songs, I gotta admit it's a loosing cause.

Ok, where do I sign up with Mother Shehan?

Thursday, October 20, 2005

Well, it looks like I'm back for a while.

SBC came and naturally the intermitant NIGHTLY problem wasn't happening when the service rep got here. He told wife that he couldn't find the problem and swapped wires- everythings cas' -right? I p*ssed the wife off when she told me that, I asked if she got his phone number?


"So we can call him tonight when the problem happens again."


Wife told him that the reason we dropped the SECOND line was that we were having the same problem as the main line- scratchy and no dial tone.

I just hope this lasts till Jan, when we can get satellite broadband- then we can dump this B.S. uncaring, unhelpful monopoly.

Tuesday, October 18, 2005

Is there somekind of D.O.S. attack going on?

Wife said that they lost their DSL several times today. My connection right now is 9.6K, which is better than most of the evening at 4.2K- my mail wouldn't even load up.

Or, maybe I could still blame SBC.

(UPDATE Oct 19 7:55PM)

I guess Mrs Trainwreck is going to miss half a day tomorrow. We'll leave the ferocious Bodus and the Magnificent Meggy inside- ANd the gate open, since the overzealious and ever conciencious SBC union stooges won't even slow down if they can't just drive in. She'll have to let them out, since they're not used to being inside for eight hours at a stretch.

Thanks SBC. We'll be short this pay period because YOU and your highly paid union thugs can't keep your system to a second world standard. I looked at their lines today, the black plastic spliceboxes you see everywhere else are black plastic BAGS- here!

We had Verizon in Maxwell- NEVER had a problem *AND* we payed less for two lines than we're paying SBC for one.

Monday, October 17, 2005

Is it just the San Antonio area?

or is everyone having a really f*cking slowww load time? I couldn't even get online this morning.

I thought it was out 26K dial-up, but Mrs.TW says that their RoadRunner has been slow lately, too.

Maybe it's SBC? I wouldn't be surprised, given the history I have with their problem solving.

I guess it's time to cull my blogroll again

I think I'm getting to the point that I'm adding more than I'm deleting.

The first one is a Mild Mannered Reporter who has a blog named the Rosemead Times, and is a commenter on this blog.

Next we have the the alphabet blog of Elenemohpee who seems kinda hit-and-miss, but we'll give him a spot anyway.

The Crack young staff of the Hatemongers Quarterly which really isn't -quarterly that is. They monger their hate on a regular basis.

We'll give Dogsnot Diaries a try, they are kinda lax on their postings, but you gotta love that title (unless you're a "Caniphobe").

That's it for this roundup, remember to curry your horses before you turn them out for the night.
I'm finally done chasing wild geese

Actually tracing mobil home wiring.
We had two outlets in the master bath that didn't work and the outside outlets quit working, too.

I took the outlets I thought were on the same circuit apart and tried to find the feed. I found it in what I (as an Electrician) would have called the middle of the run-on the outside wall completely opposite the load center. I would have run it from the panelbox to the closest box, then on around the walls. Not in a mobile home, they want to run everything under the floor.

It took about a day of connecting, unconnecting and flipping breakers to get a wiring diagram of two rooms. AND since they wanted to run everything under the floor, I had to add a box under the sink to tie into a live switch for the two dead outlets. At least I didn't have to climb under the trailer(s) and dig through the insulation to get to anything.

All told about 10 hours of work -AND we have power and light at the paddock gate.
Ya know I REALLY hate to defend Calypso Louie

But, , ,

It seems as alot on the right are trashing him by taking his words out of context.

Just like the Left did with Bill Bennett as the latest example.

What Farakahn said was:

"Well, I was in a tiny village in Mexico on the 17th of September, 1985. And I had a vision-like experience climbing a mountain there, on the top of which is a temple to the Mexo-American Christ figure, Ketso Quato. And one of these little UFOs came over that mountain and I was signaled from a group of persons to come. And I was beamed up into that small vehicle and carried to a larger vehicle, where I heard the voice of my leader and teacher, the Honorable Elijah Mohamed (search), saying. . ."

Ok, seems like everyone is dumping on him for saying that he DID get transported to a "mothership".

That's not right, he didn't say he got transported- he said he had a vision.
Taking the (snicker) 'vision thing' out of the quote changes the entire meaning.

Those on the right really SHOULD know about that- and quit taking the easy cheap shot.
They (the right) should know how hard it is to fight when the false statement(s) spread like wildfire, and how it really muddies the water (well except when the MSM decides to sit on the accusation) and distorts your meaning.

I don't have any love for him. As a matter of fact I pretty much detest all of what he represents -with the exception of his calling to blacks to be responsible (except when he says it's all whities fault) for their own wellbeing. He's a racebaiter, an anti-Semite, one of the "leaders" of the black community who actively try to keep them under their(his) control by gov't dependence and poor education, probably a socialist and hates what America stands for.

But, right is right- lets try to keep walking on the high road.

Saturday, October 15, 2005

Are you getting tired of hearing all about the Iraqi vote?

No? Me neither, that's because the MSM isn't covering it like they did the first one, any Iraqi terrorist attack, or anything questionable that American troops do.

Sure they have stories out ther, but it's pretty much one of these three two leads:

Bahgdad looses power to terrorists

Heavy security is needed

and, , , well that's about it, some dribs and drabs about prisoners detainees getting preferential treatment voting early, tribal bloc votes and did I mention the tight security?

Also, speaking of politics- who wants to guess which party was in power for 30+ years and wants to keep trowing a wrench into ANYTHING that might help their country ; because they're not now? You know, give a little to help the "poor" or even just NOT obstructing anything constructive because it *might* help the other party?

No it's not the Democrates this time, it's the
, the ones the Left is wanting back in power.

(UPDATE 9:20AM) Something I forgot to ad, maybe it should be another post.

If the sole aim of these "anti-war"activist was to get the U.S. out of Iraq, then it seems that they would actually work for a stable democratic (representative) government. Anyone who knows who the anti-war oganizers are, knows that the LAST thing they want is a stable democracy in the mid-east.

That being said, the fastset way to get the U.S. out of Iraq is to get a stable goverment up and running. Too bad that it'll free millions of Arabs, and threaten more despots and theocracies.

Nothing today, I'm tired

Tired of the two hour round trip drive.

Tired of thinking about a 7 yr-old truck that developed a (Ithink) transmission hum when I had to slam on my brakes for that Schnieder truck.

Tired of playing in the dirt (although it doesn't pay too badly).

Tired of cooking (I want to eat what I like).

Tired of cleaning up after cooking.

Tired of watching two MumblegarbleKOFFkoff (since I'm in trouble anyway for not talking nice about certain family members).

Tired of shopping (If I don't we end up with all the name brands and about $30 more than I'd spend for the same amount) [She's a Brit, she doesn't know which store brands are good, or cr@p].

Anyway, you get the point.

I did get a job offer that involves travel- maybe I'll call him back and see what the pay and bennies are. Maybe that's what I need, some space. . .
